    Kerena's Note:

    This recipe was printed in a recent issue of the Cooking Club of America magazine. Note- Pulse 24 chocolate wafer cookies in food processor or place in plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin to make cookie crumbs. Also noted, crush peppermint candies with flat side of meat mallet; shake crushed candy in fine strainer to remove fine candy powder. Prep time is a guesstimate. Posting for safe keeping.
